Sony has confirmed that Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) support is coming to PlayStation 5 this week.

Call of Duty: Vanguard, Destiny 2, Spider-Man: Miles Morales, and Resident Evil Village are among the first titles to support VRR via a firmware update that will roll out over the next few days.

PlayStation 5 users with HDMI 2.1 VRR-compatible TVs and monitors will be able to take advantage of the feature, which – in a nutshell – synchronises the refresh rate of a TV or monitor to match the console’s graphical output.

The result is fewer on-screen artefacts, an elimination of screen tearing, improved visual fidelity, and reduced input lag. Speedier, smoother, and prettier, basically.

Sony has confirmed an initial list of 15 games that will support VRR in the coming weeks. All existing PS5 games can be updated, should a developer choose to do so.

Games with confirmed PlayStation 5 VRR support

  • Astro’s Playroom
  • Call of Duty: Vanguard
  • Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War
  • Deathloop
  • Destiny 2
  • Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition
  • DIRT 5
  • Godfall
  • Marve’s Spider-Man Remastered
  • Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales
  • Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart
  • Resident Evil Village
  • Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands
  • Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege
  • Tribes of Midgard

Once your PlayStation 5 has received the next firmware update, VRR will be enabled automatically. It can be switched off in the console’s ‘Screen and Video’ menu.

Sony says that VRR can also be used with games that have not been updated but warns the results may be, appropriately enough, variable.
